Growing and Harvesting your own Veggies - Workshop

Tim Woodard from Your Patch will be in on the 2nd of May for a *FREE workshop covering: 

  • How to grow veggies in your own backyard
  • When to and how to harvest
  • Reticulation requirements
  • How to get the most out of your veggie garden

Not to be missed. There will be plenty to learn and much to take home.  Come join us in the garden. 

**Tim is an expert on urban edible gardens, mastering the art of backyard organic food production. Tim moved from the open spaces of rural WA to the urban metropolis of Perth in 2003. With him came a wealth of knowledge and a driving passion to make an organic difference to the eating habits of city folk. The idea of Your Patch Organic started to grow. Tim began with a borrowed wheelbarrow to complete his first job, a vegetable garden installation in Hamilton Hill and that’s when Your Patch Organic came to life.
